NEW YORK and MUNICH, Sept. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Global travel deals
publisher Travelzoo® (NASDAQ: TZOO) today announced an upcoming live stream
bringing the 184th Munich Oktoberfest directly to phones and computers around
the world via Facebook. Travelzoo teams from North America and Europe will be
on the ground in Munich to share the world's largest folk festival on
September 17 at 1 p.m. ET/7 p.m. local time in Munich, Germany.   

The Munich Oktoberfest attracts six million visitors from around the world who
converge on the 'Wiesn' in Munich's center every September and October.
Travelzoo will be in the center of the action on the second day of the event.
The broadcast will include scenes captured from the colorful parade of
carriages, floats and marchers in traditional costumes that wind their way
through the main streets of Munich on the first Sunday of every Oktoberfest.

Streaming live from the Hofbräu tent, Travelzoo Senior Producer Gabe Saglie
will partner with German TV news anchor and Munich local Jochen Sattler, to
provide an insider view. Featuring traditional Bavarian outfits, music, as
well as some of the secrets of the world-famous beer and food available at
Oktoberfest, the event will give travelers around the world another
destination for their bucket lists. The Hofbräu company has been brewing beer
in Munich since 1589 and has granted Travelzoo exclusive, behind the scenes
access to its over 81,000-square-foot tent area, including the hard-working
kitchens serving up the traditional weißwurst (sausages), hendl (roast
chicken) and kaiserschmarrn (sweet pastry) for which the festival is famed.

"Travelzoo is excited to bring the tradition of the 184^th Oktoberfest,
including an exclusive peek into the Hofbräu tent, to a global audience. Our

the sights, sounds and tastes of the world's largest folk festival from
wherever they are in the world," says Mike Stitt, Travelzoo's President of

Christian Smart, General Manager, Travelzoo Germany said, "This event is an
opportunity for our teams here in Munich to work as part of a global Travelzoo
team bringing the legendary Munich Oktoberfest to Travelzoo members around the
